Triumph cars and motorcycles are true British classics, and not surprisingly there's an energetic collectors' market for them.
For owners of Triumph vehicles, there's an ongoing search for spare parts and tools designed specifically for them, so that they can keep on running their cars and bikes. A Triumph motorcycle toolkit can sell for more thanÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ£100 -- far more than a similar toolkit for today's new cars and making such purchases investments in themselves.
The Triumph Bonneville range of motorcycles was first produced in 1959 and all have a parallel-twin four-stroke engine. These are sought-after bikes and sell for many thousands of pounds.
The Triumph Herald came into being at the same time, and eventually in excess of half a million of these two-door classic cars were made. You can pick up one ranging from scrap for almost nothing to sparkling and drivable for several thousand pounds.
Arriving several years later, in 1962, was the classic sports car of its era: the Triumph Spitfire. This two-seater was a convertible that, while not always suited to the frequently inclement British climate, instantly became an object of desire and today is highly collectable.
Based on the success of the Triumph Spitfire, the equally sporty Triumph GT6 went into production in the late 1960s and early 70s. It is also a popular choice of antique car collectors and as with the other models there's a range of spare parts and accessories available so that you can keep the car on the road.
